“I stand for every woman who has ever been tormented for being sexual — for every woman who has been harassed, ostracized and called a slut for exerting her sexual autonomy — and for every woman who has been the victim of The Double Standard.
You want to see me naked. And then you want to judge me for letting you see me naked.”—
A few misunderstandings social media editors at major publications want to clear up.
My quote in this story doesn’t make any sense because I guess the writer just took the parts that fit his narrative without worrying about whether or not it made sense? Who knows.
Anyway, I was asked "What do social media editors get wrong?" Which is a weird question, but I answered to the best of my ability:
"I think the popular opinion is that during breaking news social media editors tweet first and ask questions later. It’s up to each individual publisher to decide whether they’d like to be first or if they’d like to be right. You can rarely do both. When it comes to breaking news, the whole point is to get the correct information out to the most number of people. So for me, and for Digg, the priority is to be right.”
This is less of a “gotcha” and more of a “for my own sanity, I need to put my full answer somewhere”.
“Cocaine is a stupid drug. It’s expensive, it makes you feel like dog shit in the morning, and it always leads to having horrible conversations that last for goddamn ever, typically with someone you would never talk to, like an A&R guy for Matador or something awful like that. Regardless, during SXSW, cocaine is the cat’s pajamas. You can make more money selling coke during SX then you could clockin’ in at some fucking kitchen and that’s why everyone sells coke during SXSW. I can charge you motherfuckers double what I pay for it. Fourty dollar bags are 50 bucks during SX and we don’t even have those here, just $20 bags all day. Want a gram? That’s $50 and it’s two 20s. Don’t like it? Cool, take a walk and find another coke boy. Ain’t hard.”—Your guide to doing drugs at SXSW
